Moon phase and lunation details

5 days after New Moon

Previous main lunar phase is the New Moon before 5 days on 4 September 2100 at 08:49.

Moonrise and moonset

Moon rises in the morning and sets in the evening. It is visible toward the southwest in early evening.

Moon in ♏ Scorpio

Moon is leaving the last ∠3° of ♏ Scorpio tropical zodiac sector and will enter ♐ Sagittarius later.

Apparent angular diameter ∠1969"

Lunar disc appears visually 3.3% wider than solar disc. Moon and Sun apparent angular diameters are ∠1969" and ∠1905".

Harvest Moon after 8 days

Next Full Moon is the Harvest Moon of September 2100 after 8 days on 18 September 2100 at 11:32.

Upcoming main Moon phases

Neap tide

There is low ocean tide on this date. Sun and Moon gravitational forces are not aligned, but meet at big angle, so their combined tidal force is weak.

Lunation 1245 / 2198

The Moon is 6 days young. Earth's natural satellite is moving from the beginning to the first part of current synodic month. This is lunation 1245 of Meeus index or 2198 from Brown series.

PreviousCurrent lunationNext

Synodic month length 29.38 days

Length of current 1245 lunation is 29 days, 9 hours and 13 minutes. It is 1 minute longer than next lunation 1246 length.

Lunation length shorter than mean

Length of current synodic month is 3 hours and 31 minutes shorter than the mean length of synodic month, but it is still 2 hours and 38 minutes longer, compared to 21st century shortest.

Lunar orbit position on

True anomaly ∠320.8°

This lunation true anomaly is ∠320.8°. At the beginning of next synodic month true anomaly will be ∠340.4°. The length of upcoming synodic months will keep decreasing since the true anomaly gets closer to the value of New Moon at point of perigee (∠0° or ∠360°).

Moon after perigee

2 days after point of perigee on 6 September 2100 at 19:23 in ♎ Libra. The lunar orbit is getting wider, while the Moon is moving outward the Earth. It will keep this direction for the next 13 days, until it get to the point of next apogee on 22 September 2100 at 16:20 in ♉ Taurus.

Previous perigeeNext apogee

Distance to Moon 364 062 km

Moon is 364 062 km (226 218 mi) away from Earth on this date. Moon moves farther next 13 days until apogee, when Earth-Moon distance will reach 405 610 km (252 034 mi).

Moon after descending node

5 days after its descending node on 4 September 2100 at 02:42 in ♍ Virgo, the Moon is following the southern part of its orbit for the next 7 days, until it will cross the ecliptic from South to North in ascending node on 17 September 2100 at 01:56 in ♓ Pisces.

Draconic month

19 days after beginning of current draconic month in ♓ Pisces, the Moon is moving from the second to the final part of it.

Moon before southern standstill

10 days after previous North standstill on 29 August 2100 at 17:37 in ♊ Gemini, when Moon has reached northern declination of ∠28.356°. Next 2 days the lunar orbit moves southward to face South declination of ∠-28.345° in the next southern standstill on 11 September 2100 at 14:42 in ♐ Sagittarius.

Syzygy in 8 days

After 8 days on 18 September 2100 at 11:32 in ♓ Pisces, the Moon will be in Full Moon geocentric opposition with the Sun and this alignment forms next Sun-Earth-Moon syzygy.
